A quick boat ride from the bustling city of Udaipur lies Oberoi Udaivilas, a stunning palace-hotel that offers a serene respite from India’s frenetic energy. It sits on verdant grounds on the shores of Lake Pichola with picturesque views of the 16th-century City Palace. The property celebrates Indian art and architecture, with modern amenities and world-famous Oberoi service, which is extremely attentive and heartfelt, but never oppressive. For a truly unique experience, book a private lakeside dinner with a special menu accompanied by traditional music and dancing. To rest your head, the Kohinoor Suite, named after one of India’s most famous diamonds, is correspondingly incredible. There are two bedrooms in the 2,650-sq-ft suite, a large living room, outdoor tented dining pavilion and its own infinity pool with views of the lake.
